Oare to Faversham and return Sunday 13th October 2019

Post by Tharlow »

The last trip was postponed due to strong winds and rain, as the tides are similar I have decided not to do the Upper Upnor trip but to try again to do this enjoyable trip.

Meet at boathouse at 8.30.
Load boats and leave by 9.00.
Arrive at Oare car park, Church Road, Oare ME13 0QA (42 miles. Free but NO toilets) at 10.15.
This is a small car park so please keep cars to a minimum.
Launch at 11.00.
Paddle across The Swale to Harty and paddle against the tide for a mile or so.
We then cross back over The Swale to Horse Sands to look for seals and wildlife, then into Faversham Creek and paddle to the Town Quay for lunch.
High Water is at 12:57.
We leave soon after and return to Oare by 15.30
I hope to return to the boathouse by 17.30.

This 10 mile trip involves paddling across the tide and for a short time, against it; therefore paddlers should be of a 2* standard.
This will be an inter-club trip with our friends from Bewl Water and Maidstone Canoe Clubs.

If you are using club equipment, please book at:-

I'll be at the lake on Saturdays to answer any questions you may have.
